Was at a junkyard pulling the nicest best condition full center console out of a 97 explorer, and next to it was a dark green newer 2 door explorer, was told its like a 2001.
It had a greyish silver radio bezel with black grey nice bucket seats, non powered which is what I want, but it's center console had a busted lid.
Really want those seats and the junkyards guys price is pretty good. $60 for the 2!!
Quoting myself here, lol.

Any ideas? Will the seats from a 2001 explorer 2 door fit into my 99 ranger ext cab??
I went out today to look at them again, the bolts for the explorer mounts are smaller, 10mm head, and my rangers bolts are larger, like a 12mm head? Not sure if that makes a difference, may have to drill the hole larger?!

yes, they will bolt in. the bolt head size means nothing. the only thing some people have had to do it make one of the rear holes a little larger, while others have got them with no problem.

So If I find a set of seats out of a 2001 Explorer and bolt them to the s=93-97 single cab tracks they will work.

Default Re: Seats that fit in the Ranger

Ok I pulled those seats out of the 01 explorer sport, the passenger side, wasn't powered, wasn't hard to pull, but there was a wore harness with a yellow plug going to the underneath area of the seat, what is that for? Airbag? Seatbelt sensor?

Anyway, the driver side was powered! And it was in the way back position, making it impossible to get at the rear bolts.
I used an atv battery to hook up to the wires and was able to power it up and move it forward.
Now it also had the same yellow connector, but it also had another connector harness, a black one, so I figured that must be for the power forward/back, so that's what I hooked the battery up to, and it worked.
Got the seat out, got them home in my garage. Gotta clean them up with the shopvac latter and maybe shampoo them when I get the chance.

But how do I go about wiring these seats up into my truck?
I know the driver side power one I can just find and hook up to an accessory power supply, but what about the other wiring connectors, the yellow ones that im not sure what they are for??

More than likely the yellow connectors are for Airbag/safety stuff. I've heard of putting resistors in the middle to loop the wires together....but I think thats just to keep the Airbag light from coming on
You have pics of these yellow connectors?

yellow wires on the expo seats will not be needed in your ranger. some have airbags in the seats, marked by an embossed logo on the outsides of the seats. if they don't have that, then the yellow plug has a cap on them. either way, you do not need anything with them. cut them off, don't put any type of power to them! the black plus is the only one you need to worry about with the seats. power and ground. some people run it from the lighter, some run it back to the fuse box.


you may have to reuse your seat belts from your seat if they won't buckle into the explorer belts. you shouldn't have pretensioners in your truck, so you should be good to go.
